How do I edit my Profile?
Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). This lesson may include two images for specific steps to show the difference between the two designs. Unless otherwise indicated, the functionality and location of the components remain the same. The view available to you is determined by your institution.
Profiles allows you to update your name, preferred contact methods, and any personal links for your account.
If you want to view a video about personal settings, you can watch User Settings & Profile Picture (Video).
Note: If you do not see the Profiles tab in your user navigation menu, this feature has not been enabled for your institution. Profiles need to be enabled at the account level before they can be used at the course level. If you are an instructor, please contact your Canvas admin to enable this feature.
Click the Edit Profile button.
Edit Profile Picture
To upload a profile picture, click the profile picture icon. Learn more about how to upload a profile picture.
Note: Profile pictures are a separate permission from profiles. If you do not see a placeholder picture, your institution has not enabled this feature.
Edit Ways to Contact Me
If you have connected to any web services, click the checkbox underneath the web service to indicate how you wish to be contacted via that service . To add additional services, click the Manage Registered Services link.
The Discussion icon  automatically appears as a contact method for Admins so users can contact them through Canvas Conversations. It cannot be selected by any other uses.
Note: As created in your user profile, email addresses do not appear as a contact method and are only used for Canvas notifications. Canvas users should contact each other via Conversations.
